For some reason, we are not able to change it with the Repo Manager. I didn't try to fix by editing the sources.lists since many new arrivals won't know how to do it. As I remember, the RepoMan seemed OK, and there was nothing to change.

I would suggest leaving/changing to the Brazilian repo. That works for me in Venezuela.
At present, the August snapshot is not usable (at least in South America :)
Thanks, Richard.

@Adrian,
Sorry to inform but I have the same problem as the August snapshot, on the 18-8-Workbench.
Reload of database gives the same error:
"The repository 'http://mirror.upb.edu.co/mx-workspace/mx
repo stretch Release' does not have a Release file."
Opened sources.list in Synaptic and there is the UPB directory.

Fortunately, there is an install of MX-17.1 on this AA1 32 bit netbook.
Replaced only the URL in Synaptic, in the entries for antix.list & mx.list as follows:
-- removed
-- http://mirror.upb.edu.co
+ inserted
+ http://mirror.cedia.org.ec

Proceed to reload database and upgrade:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get full-upgrade
The same workaround will serve for the August snapshot as well.

@Richard,
not sure I fully understand what you are doing.
Just use the standard procedure as described with the MX User Manual
and change within the MX Repo Manager the repo to a better working Mirror:

I have just simulated your issue concerning the UBP-repos.
Booting from MX-17.1_August_x64.iso within KVM virtual pc
with setting timezone to tz=America/Sao_Paulo
The mx/antix repos have been defaulted as yours to ubp-repos.
And do show update-errors with the ubp-mirror.

But after changing the repo with MX-repo manager,
I have full functional MX Linux with no issues when updating or installing.
Perhaps I missed something, but doing just the default procedure of
changing the mirror with the MX Repo manager.

Here the repos after booting from ISO with tz=America/Sao_Paulo:

Code: Select all

$ inxi -r

@Fehlix,
You are absolutely correct. The effect is the same.
I probably didn't follow through with the RepoManager.
[EDIT: MX Repo Manager worked great to correct the bad mirror problem with the Aug_386 version.]

I just exchanged the URL of the UPB; for the URL of the Cedia repo directly in both mx.list and antix.list.
Apologies. I learned the old method many years ago.

Some muddled thinking ?
1. I should download the snapshot and use it to replace the MX iso in my torrents seeder.

2. No I should not. Unless every person in the seeding group does the same , the torrents will be seeing different seed files.

I believe the second thought to be correct. However this means that new users who get their AntiX/MX iso's by torrents download will be getting
the originals and be liable for heaps of updates. Is this correct ??
